The Grande Dame refresh nears conclusion

The award-winning Radisson Aruba Resort, Casino & Spa is pleased to announce that its overall property renovation is set for completion in the middle of October 2011, with the Aruba Tower refresh as the final phase of the transformation.

The Aruba Tower, the resort’s main building, remains the home of the Plaza Club, which offers extra, personalized service to guests staying in club-level accommodations on the top two floors of the tower.  The rooms of the Bonaire and Curacao Towers were completely refreshed earlier this year.

Guests will experience a new sense of arrival, with updated furnishings and the relocation of the reception area further into the open-air lobby.  Now, guests can experience magnificent views of the ocean, beach, and pool the moment they arrive.

Guests staying throughout the resort will enjoy newly refreshed hallways featuring murals, accented ceilings, and upgraded carpeting.

New room furnishings and amenities include I-Home clock radios, 42-inch plasma TVs, Simmons Luxury Plush EverNu mattresses, and a new bedding and linen standard that features a luxury duvet cover, contemporary accents, and 300-count 2×2 basket-weave sheets and pillowcases.

Every room has been enhanced with computerized climate-control systems with dehumidifiers for ultimate comfort and a stay-dry environment. Additionally, all of the resort’s windows and doors have been replaced by double-pane “airport quality” glass for a soundproof experience. For guests’ additional comfort, each room also includes upgraded carpeting, a credenza, headboard wall design, and a bench at the foot of the bed.

Fine dining is a hallmark at the Radisson, and its AAA Four Diamond restaurant, Sunset Grille, has also been refurbished with new furnishings, kitchen equipment, glassware, and china.  Additionally, the interior sports a new color scheme and has been refreshed in order to maximize indoor and outdoor seating.  Mira Solo Martini Bar has undergone a refresh with soft-goods enhancements and redesigned space that will maximize guests’ waterfront experience.

In addition to a resort-wide room renovation, the Aruba Tower Meeting Space has also been given a full facelift.  The casino at the resort is next on the renovation list; it will include state-of-the-art gaming equipment, with a full back-of-the-house package designed for an enhanced loyalty program.

Landscaping throughout the resort has been refreshed with new plantings and manicuring to accentuate the tropical environment for which the Grand Dame is famous. The resort has also recently expanded its interactive aviary program with additional tropical birds.   Guests can now visit nine birds on property, including four Macaws with the oldest celebrating its 34th birthday, a Blue & Gold Macaw, a Sulfur-Crested Cockatoo, two African Grey Parrots, a Cuban Amazon Parrot, and a Brazilian Toucan.

Fully renovated yet still offering its award-winning service, the AAA Four Diamond Radisson Aruba Resort, Casino & Spa is now better than ever and eager to welcome guests to its 15-acre slice of paradise.
